GRA seizes $20M in smuggled liquor and cigarettes

The Authority’s Law Enforcement & Investigations Division (LEID) of the Guyana Revenue Authority (GRA) on Thursday seized over 82 cases of smuggled liquor and over 62 bales of cigarettes from a property at Atlantic Garden, East Coast Demerara (ECD).

In a statement on Friday, GRA said the smuggled items were valued at more than $20 million.

“The Revenue Authority, as it continues with a zero-tolerance approach against smuggling and other illegal activities, thereby allowing for a ‘level playing field for legitimate businesses and the collection of revenue, once again, encourages persons involved in such activities to cease and desist therefrom, and bring themselves into compliance with the nation’s Tax, Trade, and Border laws,” the statement concluded.
